The first Captain Bob and the present Captain Peta Rhodes were invited to cut the cake which was enjoyed by all of those present.
Our league programme commenced on 11th October and before it started two of our teams, the Swallows in the first division and the Swans in the third division of the Southern League were challenging for the top spot.
Our club championships are in full swing with some surprises coming to light. These will go on through the winter, with the semis and finals taking place in February and March 2018.
Our Saturday morning ‘Chicken Drive’ is open to visitors. Players wishing to take part should report at 9.45am for a 10am start.
